The beneficiation strategy is aimed at providing a strategic focus for South Africas minerals industry in terms of developing mineral value chains and facilitating the expansion of beneficiation initiatives in the country, up to the last stages of the value chain.
Mining and mineral beneficiation plays a pivotal part in South Africas economy. The countrys mineral reserves are among the most valuable in the world. South Africa has the worlds largest reserves of platinum group metals (PGMs) and manganese, and some of the largest gold, diamonds, chromite ore and vanadium deposits.
Beneficiation. An area where South Africa can increase its potential for economic growth, development and job creation is the Beneficiation of its extracted minerals. Beneficiation is the transformation of a mineral, or a combination of minerals, into a higher-value product, which can either be consumed locally or exported.

Coal Beneficiation Coal beneficiation is a process by which the quality of raw coal is improved by either reducing the extraneous matter that gets extracted along with the mined coal or reducing the associated ash or both. Two basic processes of beneficiation Dry-deshaling Non-coal or shaly-coal is removed without using any liquid media.
5 South Africa possesses the worlds largest mineral resources by value. It is also a significant global producer of many mined commodities. The role of metallurgy in the mining value chain will be examined in terms of what is practised currently and the potential to expand. The optimum degree of metallurgical beneficiation is highly dependent on economic
